BRP may have been the first to break the 100-horsepower barrier with the Can-Am Maverick 1000, but it looks like Polaris will take it a step further with the not-yet-announced 2014 RZR XP 1000.
Polaris has released no information about the new RZR XP 1000 – it was the United States Environmental Protection Agency who let that cat out of the bag and Polaris is none too pleased about it. The EPA released its 2014 test results earlier this month, which showed that Polaris had submitted a 999cc RZR XP 1000 and RZR XP 4 1000 for testing. Power output was listed at 80 kilowatts, which translates to a whopping 107 horsepower. The EPA has since deleted the information (likely at Polaris’ request), but you can see it here (check out lines 134 and 135 in particular).
